two months ago air france plane skidded off the runway and burned down - all crew and pasengers survived.

apparently all that could have been prevented by a simple measure - wall at the end of a runway

YOu always hear that Pearson is such a great airport. At least it seems Toronto prides itself on it, I mean it has been under construction one way or the other since I was a kid. THe good thing though is EMS got there in 52 seconds. thats how long it took to type this. Maybe the airport is not so good, I remember when we were young we could just climb a little fence and walk onto the runway and lay at the end and the airplanes would seem like they would almost land on us, so loud....yes stupid I know, but fun. point is nobody ever came and told us to get outta there, maybe they didnt see us...
